The red thread (2012) by PHAN Quang
“The idea behind Poetic Politic engages the way socio-political messages are embedded in image-making in Vietnam and Cambodia, particularly within two media that are popularly perceived and circulated, namely video and photography.
As a curator, I am continually challenged in my reading of art in these two incredible countries where artists face enormous obstacles in the realization of their practice due to resource limitations and limits on freedom of expression.”
- Zoe Butt
